Default Computer problem

So, my computer was working like crap and finally today just everything stopped working. So i decided to restore it to be like the same day I bought it but with all the music, videos, etc... and programs still there.

So now it works fine. but the old programs dont work. They are there. ocupping their space but its like they are not installed. When I open them they say theres no compatibility or something like that. I tried reinstalling them but I it gives me an error message. Also they dont appear in the Control Panel "Add or remove programs" list. For some reason some of them do work. Utorrent and some games work, but most of them like windows live messenger, Alcohol 120, etc.. dont.

So any idea? Should I just remove them manully all of them and try to reinstall the. Should I format the computer?+

Thanks in advance...

I'd back up all of your files and reformat the hard drive.

whenever i get a computer issue i usually resort to Google. I type in my problem followed by the word "help". It tends to bring up various chat sites/forums that will explain how to rememdy the situation.
